CALA re-opens its doors in Sussex with New Homes ready to move in

Following the Government’s recent Stamp Duty holiday announcement, five-star housebuilder CALA Homes is encouraging house hunters looking to make a swift move to discover the stunning ‘ready for you’ properties available at its stunning West Sussex developments, which have reopened their doors following lockdown.

CALA’s popular Cresswell Park development in Angmering is ideally located for coastal living, with convenient amenities, good schooling and idyllic family walks at the nearby South Downs National Park. The development offers a collection of three, four and five-bedroom homes, some of which are ready to move into. With prices starting from £345,000, the homes appeal to a wide range of purchasers, from first-time buyers and families seeking flexible living, to downsizers looking for a more relaxed way of life.

Situated just one mile from Chichester city centre, Shopwyke Lakes is a new community of contemporary two, three, four & five bedroom houses and one & two bedroom apartments. As the only lakeside development in Chichester, these new homes offer the height of modern living in a well-connected location just off the A27. Prices range from just £230,000 to £600,000.

If costal living isn’t for you Arun Fields in Horsham provides the perfect balance between bustling market town and idyllic countryside surroundings.  The local area offers plenty of opportunities to get outdoors and enjoy scenic woodland walks, as well as a number of cafes, shops and local pubs just a stone’s throw away. There are now just five stunning four-bedroom homes available at Arun Fields, priced from £545,000 to £625,000, all of which are ready to move into this summer.

CALA is encouraging visitors to pre-book appointments and have put in place a range of new social distancing and hygiene measures to give customers peace of mind when they visit their developments.

Nicki Dennis, Sales and Marketing Director for CALA Homes South Home Counties, said: “We’re delighted to have re-opened our doors following lockdown and be welcoming visitors back to site. For those who would like to continue to house hunt from the comfort of their sofa, our sales teams remain available to speak over the phone and we have a number of virtual tours on our website allowing homebuyers to explore every room of a property in detail and at their leisure remotely.”

Nicki, adds: “Most people tend to purchase a new build home either off-plan or during construction, which can have many benefits. However, purchasing a home that is ready-built means house hunters can see first-hand the layout, design and quality of the property.

“We can also give them a fixed moving date, sometimes in as little as four weeks, meaning purchasers can get everything organised for a stress-free move. Selected homes already include flooring and carpets, light fittings, curtains and landscaping – all a purchaser would need to do is move in and add their own finishing touches.”

To further speed up the moving process, all homes are available with CALA’s up to 100% Part Exchange Service. The scheme works by the homebuilder effectively acting as a cash buyer for the seller’s existing property, providing them with the peace of mind that the sale will complete in time for the move into their new home. With no estate agents’ fees incurred, the service could save thousands of pounds on the overall cost of the move.

If you’d rather sell your existing property on the open market, CALA’s Assisted Move scheme can help make the process as smooth as possible as well as saving costs. Following independent valuations, CALA will advise on the list price of the house and appoint a selling agent on the purchaser’s behalf to achieve a sale in a timescale that will allow them to move into their new home. CALA will also pay the selling agent’s fees, home buyer report costs (where applicable) and contribute £1,000 toward removal fees.

Alternatively, a selection of the homes are available using the Government-backed Help to Buy Equity Loan Scheme. Designed for both first-time and existing homebuyers, Help to Buy is an initiative for purchasers who need support with deposit funds, enabling them to obtain a mortgage of between 75% and 85% with as little as 5% cash deposit, on any home up to £600,000.
